How come the new carriers that deliver in the Antrim neighborhood neglect to deliver weekly ads to their customers? 2 weeks in a row, they have not been delivered.... however, when we contacted Acme, Shoprite and Giant -- those ads most certainly went out to their customers.


Over the past two weeks the Bear Library has very dirty. The trash cans at the door are overflowing and there is circulars left all over the place.


i called the number listed and they never answered either. called the 800 number and it gave me 302-838-5006 and they answered first ring


I have called the 838-5006 number repeatedly, and nobody picks up. I left a message for a call back from the 800 number, but it said that my wait time was between 17-20 minutes. It is now going on 28 minutes -- and no call back!

They NEVER answer the phone at this location. My mail is supposed to be forwarded (temporarily) and instead they are RETURNING it. I deeply regret opening a box at this location. Avoid this post office at all costs.
